The business of running a museum or gallery is becoming an increasingly challenging task. The erosion of public funding means museums and galleries are expected to do much more with less. They are expected to find new revenue streams, to make operations more efficient and to compete in an ever changing, challenging world.

The objectives of the 2016 Museum Enterprises Conference (MEC) are to:
• Demonstrate innovative ideas and practices
• Explore diverse opinions
• Provide examples of best practices
• Debate controversial issues
• Challenge assumptions
• Stimulate discussion and delegate engagement
• Offer extensive opportunities to network

…in essence, to learn from our knowledgeable keynote speakers and from one another!

Through a mix of presentations, round tables, open forum discussions and networking opportunities, an extensive list of topics will be addressed.

Who Should Attend? If you are involved in revenue generation, retail and food operations, visitor services, admissions, membership, rentals and special events then this is the conference for you!
